Accommodation offer (free)


(I guess this is bordering on a commercial posting, but no money will change hands, so we'll see how it fares)

I'm considering making my farm at Elands (NSW) available for rider accommodation. I'm testing the logistics to do this commercially, so I'm after a few "market researchers" to do a free trial. The only catch is that you have to pose for photographs that I might eventually put on FB or a web site, if I decide to go ahead with it.

My farm is nicely located for what I think is the best day ride in the state:

* Elands - Comboyne, all well-made dirt road

* Oxley Highway to Walcha, regarded by many as the best motorbike road in Australia

* Nowendoc then Cells Rd, sweeping smooth dirt roads through sheep country, stunning countryside with distant vistas.

* Shortcut through the forest, partly on dual-track, back to Elands.

I'm located about 20 mins ride from Ellenborough falls, the tallest single-drop falls in Australia.

I will allow riding on the farm, at my discretion. I have a couple of kilometers of private track, creek crossings, open fields, etc. It's ideal to try out a bit of genuine off-road on your adventure bike. The farm is as pretty as any resort, with waterfalls, wallabies at the front door, etc.

Elands is about 5 hours ride/drive from Sydney. The Oxley loop takes all day, so you'd need to stay at least two nights if not three (depending on where you start from). But there are plenty of great local routes that are an hour or two.

I can take up to four riders. It will be a case of byo whatever you plan to consume. We'd need to arrange this a few weeks in advance. I'm only a part-time farmer so it has to fit with my day job in Sydney.

Any takers?

Have you heard of Motostays ?

There is a web site if you are a genuinley nice person and have free accomodation for motorcyclists - its called Motostays

we have registered (for free last year) and have had a couple of motorcyclists stay with us and its been lots of fun.

We now have links in Canada and Austria for mates who share our passion.
Plus next time we are overseas I will use this service as well as airbnb but you have to pay for that accomodation and its not speciifically for us two wheelers.

Ellenborough falls @160m < Wallaman Falls @ 268m

The waterfall is notable for its main drop of 268 metres (879 ft),[3][6] which makes it the country's tallest single-drop waterfall.
Not trying to be a smart@rse, but you might want to change this before you print any brochures/build a website. :)
